George Strait and the loss of his daughter
February 13, 2016
Grief comes in may forms and in many ways...
If you know anyone that has lost a child and think they are grieving too long, please don't judge.
If they speak the child's name often and it makes YOU uncomfortable, please look at your own heart.
If you say "but she/he was just a baby", remember that the "just a baby" was carried in the womb by a momma and loved by a family just as much as any other child in this world. Age is meaningless in a parents heart.
If you know anyone that has experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth or only minutes with their child, please don't judge and think "well, they really didn't know the child". The child is known.
If your eyes only see the parents actions in the grief and not the beauty of the child that is gone, please look at your own heart.
If after many many years of losing our child (like George Strait), we as parents are still writing songs, running charities, wearing their picture in a necklace locket, desperate to help others through the journey (like the intent of his song), sharing with the world our testimony of surviving the greatest loss...please don't judge.
Please know that these efforts have nothing to do with us as parents and everything to do with the love we have for our kiddo and the love we have for a God that saw us through it.
